I'm new in CoCreate Forum and I want present a well-known problem but very important: The conversion from .stl files for CoCreate

I've CoCreate Modelling 2008 and i'm working on Printer 3D's project, and i can only Save .stl format but i can't Load. This is a very big problem...

I ask you, who are experts, and i hope...

Re: Import .stl files

The .stl file is basically a 3D point cloud file. There is no face or solid geometry defined by it.

Modeling can create this file type but doesn't load it back as a solid model.

Re: Import .stl files

I've fixed my problem:

First Step you must load with "SolidWorks" the .stl file keeping attention to activate in the options the voice "Solid Body"

Second Step save your file with "SolidWorks" to "*x_b"

Third Step Open the new "*x_b" file with "CoCreate Modelling"

IF there are problems to load "x_b" files from CoCreate you must use "MeshLab"
Load your .stl file into "MeshLab".

Select all the non-manifold vertices and delete them:

Go to “Filters > Selection > Select non Manifold vertices” to select.

Go to “Filters > Selection > Delete Selected Vertices” to delete.

After deleting all of the selected non-manifold vertices, some new non-manifold vertices may have created. Repeat the select and delete until no non-manifold vertices can be selected.

Keeping attention to save the ".stl" file in ".stl"

Repeat Step 1-2-3

If you have problem to find in Cocreate "x_b" be shure to have selected the option "SAT" in "Interface"
